This performance of Floodtide made music from the tide of the Walney Channel. A submerged sensor at the Dock Museum, Barrow-in-Furness gathered information from tidal flow that was converted into musical notation and read from screens or mobile phones by musicians.  Following a public workshop, performers included sound artists, a non-musician who performed using locally sourced driftwood and children. 

Part of Octopus Collective's Machine Music weekend. For more info visit here.
